What Does it Mean to be Reformed?

A listener asks "the famous Carl Trueman" what “to be Reformed” really means, as Aimee and Todd play the mediators.

The term “Reformed” is full of meaning, but many times it’s reduced to simply mean holding to the five points of Calvinism or merely ascribing to a predestinarian theology. What does it mean to be Reformed, and—conversely—what does it not mean? What bearing does the 16th and 17th-century church have on this word today, and what other factors make one’s faith practice truly Reformed? Does Reformed theology necessitate Reformed liturgy? How do you know you just walked into a Reformed church? The famous Dr. Trueman answers it all.
